"We had a job that required integrating a bamboo, wood and chainlink fence, including a gateway and arbour. The final solution that was produced was far better than expected. We were thrilled with the final design and it has enhanced our home and property greatly."
- Geoff Burg
Buying a wood fence should be a good experience!
A fence should last 25 -30 years if installed properly. Make the right choice and choose Suburban Fence. We will install your fence without taking shortcuts to ensure that you have a long lasting wood fence that is built right.
As with any fence, the most important and foundational component is the post. You can choose between a 4×4 post and a 6×6 post; however the difference between them is night and day. Based on structure, the 4×4 posts may shake and wobble whereas the 6×6 posts are firm and strong. During our professional consultation, we will provide you with our option on which posts you should use – based on the fence location, tree blockage, wind load area, and fence design.
Most of our competition will try to compromise the materials used to make the fence cheaper, but we will educate you on the differences and let you decide based on an informed decision.
For instance, at Suburban, we connect the rails to the posts properly and to the standards of the Ontario Building Code. We do not use brackets instead we use a direct connection. We also use the correct amount of nails to secure the fence together- for each 1 1/2" of lumber a nail is used and positioned properly to ensure a good connection. This is important especially with pressure treated lumber, which is typically wet and will shrink and warp when the lumber dries out. A proper nailing pattern will help to keep the fence looking good and ensure the longevity of the installation.
Remember "Good work ain't cheap. Cheap work ain't good." – Norman 'Sailor Jerry' Collins
